police the suspect's connection to two missing women in vallejo.. a murder suspect killed at a mall after a high-speed chase with police. the suspect's connection to two missing well in vallejo. >> a historic moment in baghdad as u.s. officials formally hand over control of military operations back to the iraq government. >> good morning. it's wednesday, september 1. i'm john kessler. >> i'm sydnie kohara. good morning, everyone. an east bay murder suspect is dead this morning. he is now being connected with killings in two counties. right now bomb squad units are at two different locations. anne makovec is at a home in vallejo where officers made a gruesome discovery. >> reporter: good morning. police have been here all night. they found the bodies of two women in this home here behind me on upland court overnight.
6:01 am
the bodies were chopped up, according to police. police have not positively confirmed yet if they are indeed two missing women in their 60s that have been missing since last week. one of those women did live here. they were both acquaintances of a man suspected of at least two other murders and here is that man. his name is efren valdemoro, 38 years old. now, he was shot and killed by officers last night. officers say that valdemoro fled the chp on a high-speed chase that began in pleasant hill. the chase ended in a shopping center parking lot in richmond. valdemoro was killed inside the store and then his girlfriend was found dead in the car. >> once the suspect came to this location here at the ranch 99 market, he fled on food into the market in which two officers gave chase. once they encountered the suspect he was armed with a
6:02 am
large knife. he was given commands repeatedly to drop the weapon in which the officers were in fear for their lives. they discharged their firearms and the suspect suffered fatal injuries. >> reporter: now, that suspect valdemoro was already being sought by police accused of beating to death a 73-year-old man ricardo sales at this home in hercules. hercules police found sales' body saturday inside his home on crepe myrtle. still missing this morning is sales' son, frederick, 35 years old. he too was last seen inside the hercules home. and he is still missing this morning. and here are the two women that have been missing since last week. valdemoro, the dead accused murderer, has personal ties to 63-year-old rita allen and her friend carol smart. valdemoro was seen driving allen's car recently according
6:03 am
to police. valdemoro may also have rented a room here at the house we're hearing. and we're also hearing that allen's husband has been taken in by police for questioning. so we didn't know whether or not he has a connection to this. right now we know that two women's bodies have been found dead in this home. still waiting for positive identification. but two women were reported missing last week, one of them lived in this home. i know this is all very confusing. it's also very confusing for police at this hour. several different agencies involved in this. and, of course, we are going it stay on this on cbs 5. >> they have a lot of work to do. thank you. a police officer's condition shot in oakland last night has improved and he has had another operation. yesterday's surgery on 39-year- old todd young was successful. young's condition now upgraded to serious but stable. the shooting suspect is still in jail in san diego.
6:04 am
that's 20-year-old andrew barrientos. he is now charged with attempted murder. he is expected to be arraigned in alameda county next tuesday. it's 6:03. september 1st and we are starting the third month without a state budget. lawmakers ended their session last night after debate it would go different plans. governor schwarzenegger said he would not signed a budget without tax and pension reforms. but the government isn't getting any budget plan, neither the senate nor the assembly passing any version yesterday. the governor might call lawmakers back for a special session to work on the budget. there will not be a statewide ban on plastic grocery bans in california at least in the near future. the state senate yesterday rejected the bill that called for stores to stop giving out plastic bags starting in 2012. also called for retailers to charge customers for paper bags. well, the bill's supporters say billions of plastic bags hurt environment but opponents say the bag would cost the state jobs and add to financial
6:05 am
burdens on people and businesses. yesterday's vote, though, is not going to affect the plastic bag bans that are already approved in several california cities. it is 6:05. a transition ceremony this morning in baghdad to mark the end of operation iraqi freedom. vice president joe biden and defense secretary robert gates are there. these are live pictures from that ceremony in iraq. it ushers in the final phase of the iraq war, called "operation new dawn." it shifts the focus of the 50,000 u.s. servicemembers in iraq away from combat operations. now they will prepare iraqi security forces to protect their own country. hurricane earl is now downgraded it a category 3 storm. still prompting evacuations, though, along parts of the north carolina coast. the storm already causing problems for beach lifeguards yesterday. this is off of the coast of kill devil hills. a swimmer was rescued after getting sucked out by a rip current. earl is expected to bring high
6:06 am
winds, heavy rain to north carolina's outer banks by late tomorrow or early friday. forecasters say after that, earl could potentially affect other stretches of the atlantic coast including massachusetts and maine. it's 6:06. let's get you out the door. we are going to check with this weather that is certainly warming up around the bay area, but first traffic. elizabeth, how's it looking? >> we have our first the accident of morning now in oakland, eastbound 580 approaching highway 13. it is against the commute. solo car hit the center divide. so far we'll show you a wider view no delays east- or westbound 580 but watch out for that. chp is heading to the scene. in the meantime elsewhere through oakland 880 we have a camera near the coliseum and everything is nice and quiet. taillights move northbound towards high street looks good towards downtown oakland and southbound traffic moving just as well down the nimitz freeway towards oakland airport and hayward. mass transit is -- it's a "spare the air" day so use mass transit if you can. everything is on time. that is your traffic. for your forecast, here's

[ laughter ] >> what are they coming out with today? is this their yearly thing? >> this is their yearly music event. so one of the first things we expect is ipods always super popular. they are losing market share because of the iphone took over and can do everything but the ipod touch what we are expecting to see is their new device have the crisp display and the face time so this is that video conferencing currently the iphone 4 is the only one where you can hold your phone and talk with people with this face time but now the ipod touch will be one of those things. apple, you know, said when they first released the apple 4 that they would ship over 10 million face time equipped devices so the ipod touch naturally has to be one of those. that's what we expect to hear from them today. >> is that the only thing? i have been hearing rumors about music and things. >> one of the other device they have that's popular for people on the go the ipod nano still hasn't got a scroll wheel and button. but now they are looking to

an east bay murder suspect is dead this morning. he good morning. it's wednesday, september 1. >> a lot of news to begin with this morning. in the east bay there is a dead murde suspect, possibly connected with killings in two counties. the bomb squad units are at two different location. anne makovec is at a home in vallejo where officers made a gruesome discovery. >> reporter: i'm on upland
6:31 am
court in vallejo. two women's bodies were found here in this house behind me. now, the bomb squad just pulled up here as you can see to this location. let's put the bomb scare aside and go back to the murders. the two bodies were found here in this house chopped up according to police. this man is accused of three murders. efren valdemoro 38 years old shot and killed by officers last night. now, officers say that valdemoro led the chp on a high- speed chase that began in pleasant hill that ended in a shopping center in richmond. valdemoro was killed inside the store by officers. his girlfriend was found dead in
6:32 am
the car. >> now, valdemoro was already being sought by police before this high-speed chase last night accused of beating to death 73-year-old ricardo sales at this home in hercules. hercules found sales body on saturday inside his home on crepe myrtle. still missing this morning is sales' son frederick, 35 years old, last seen inside the home in hercules. he is missing this morning. here are the pictures of the two women missing since last week. valdemoro has personal ties to rita allen and her friend 60- year-old carol smart. valdemoro was seen driving allen's car according to police, recently. valdemoro may have at one point
6:33 am
lived in the home on upland court in vallejo. now another twist to this story, allen's husband her with us was taken into the police station for questioning. it's confusing. we'll follow it for you on cbs 5 and cbs5.com. >> thank you, anne makovec. let's go to richmond now. anne mentioned a couple of bomb squads looking at things. someone in richmond where the suspect was killed by chp officers last night. trent cross joins us from chp. >> bomb squad was here because we believe there was possibly some type of explosive device
6:34 am
so the bomb squad determined there were no explosive devices in the car. >> okay. can you -- have you learned anything more about the connections of what's been going on here? >> well, it's still early in the investigation. so what you have is the vallejo police department along with the california highway patrol, hercules, and the contra costa district attorney's office all trying to put the pieces together to determine how this thing initiated from beginning all the way up to this point. but what we do know so far is that there are multiple deceased victims including the suspects, and there's a lot of confusion at this point. but we're trying to get these pieces together as quickly as possible. >> we are talking almost about three different investigations. i mean, how did this pursuit of this suspect begin? pleasant hill police department asked the chp to pursue the suspect on the freeway.
6:35 am
we chased him from pleasant hill to richmond. once he stopped here in this asian market parking lot he fled from the vehicle on foot into the market. two chp officers confronted the suspect in which he was armed with a large knife. the suspect was given multiple commands to drop the knife in which he failed to do so and the officers were in fear for their lives and so they discharged their firearms in which the suspect was struck and suffered fatal injuries. and so while this is taking place, additional chp officers outside the market located a female unconscious inside the suspect vehicle so they pulled her out immediately tried to render aid and determined that she had been deceased for a while and so she was dead inside the vehicle. >> sergeant, thank you very much. sergeant trent cross with the chp. it is 6:35. a transition ceremony to mark the end of operation iraqi freedom ended just moments ago in baghdad. vice president joe biden and defense secretary robert gates were there. this ushers in the final phase
6:36 am
of the iraq war called operation new dawn. it shifts the focus of the 50,000 u.s. servicemembers remaining in iraq away from combat operations. now they will prepare iraqi security forces to protect their own country. hurricane earl is now downgraded to a category 3 storm but it is still prompting evacuation all along parts of the north carolina coast. yesterday, that's that swim her to be rescued after getting sucked out by a rip current. earl is expected to bring high winds and heavy rain to north carolina's outer banks by late tomorrow or early friday. forecasters say after that, earl could potentially affect our stretches of the atlantic coast including massachusetts and maine. we're going to be hitting triple digits some places in the bay today. first though let's get you off to work. good morning, elizabeth. >> good morning, guys. we are just guessing first reports of a structure fire in hayward. it's near the intersection of jacobs place and bayview avenue but you can see it's close to the 580 and 238 freeways.
6:37 am
so what we're told from some members of the kcbs phone force that smoke may be visit as you approach the castro valley y in that area. chopper 5 is heading to the scene so maybe in the next few minutes we get an idea of how big the fire is and if it's impacting traffic at all in the area. live traffic camera of the bay bridge toll plaza where they turned on the metering lights a couple of minutes ago so we are seeing delays to the end of the parking lot just in the busiest lanes and we have a new accident in petaluma. southbound 101 approaching petaluma boulevard south three to four-car crash it is off to the shoulder. no big delays according to the our sensors. that is your traffic. for your forecast, here's tracy. >> hey, thanks, elizabeth. boy, it is going to heat up today quite a bit. here's a look at our sunrise. not here just yet. but looks good, doesn't it? 6:39 sunrise. this is our camera from mount vaca. forecast for today, clear skies for the morning. and that's going to lead us to warmer temperatures today. mid-80s in san francisco.

that's close to 15 degrees above average. 91 in palo alto. 93 in san jose. 88 degrees in oakland. and 98 in antioch. 99 in pleasanton. and the mid-90s in sonoma and santa rosa. we're warming up today and we'll continue to be quite warm, hot across the bay area as we move into tomorrow. thursday up to 102 degrees. mid-80s around the bay. mid-70s for the coastline. our labor day weekend the hot temperatures will not stick around. it will cool down. and it will be more mild, more pleasant moving into a nice three-day holiday weekend. that's a look at your weather. back up to you. we're now starting the third month without a state budget. lawmakers ending their session late last night after debating two different budget plans. governor schwarzenegger said that he would not sign a budget without tax reform an pension reform in it. but the governor's not going to get any budget plan to sign. neither the senate nor the assembly passed either version they debated yesterday and the
6:39 am
governor might call lawmakers back though for a special session to work on the budget. there will not be a statewide ban on plastic grocery bags in california at least not in the near future. the state senate yesterday rejected the bill that called for stores to stop giving out plastic bags starting in 2012. it also called for retailers to charge customers for paper bags. the bill's supporters say that billions of plastic bags hurt the environment. opponents say the ban could cost state jobs and add to the financial burdens of people and businesses. yesterday's vote is not going to affect the plastic bag bans already approved in several california cities. drivers in the south bay are facing some long lines at the dmv this week. the line went out the door of the dmv office on west alma and san jose yesterday. things weren't any better at the santa clara office. drivers tell us there was the same story on monday. wait times have reached nearly four hours. >> it's horrible!
6:40 am
supposed to be a public service but this is just going back to the dark ages. >> the dmv says the lines could be related to problems with new cameras installed at offices last week. they are linked to the computer system, which could have caused slowdowns in services. it is 6:40. new figures out this morning on personal spending. the latest financial news when we return. >> also this story. we're only running it for sydnie. >> no, i'm happily married. elizabeth and tracy.
